Strelitzia nicolai

Giant White Bird of Paradise or Wild Banana

Strelitzia nicolai is the Giant Bird of Paradise, a towering mass of tropical foliage. It can grow up to 30' tall, clumping to form a jungle on its own. These clumps can be divided for propagation. This variety produces white flowers multiple times per year, and when birds sit on the flower to drink nectar, the petals open up coat their feet in pollen. Cold hardy to 28°F and requiring little water, this species will thrive in full sun or partial shade.
